Derivco Pretoria hosted the Derivco 21st Birthday celebration for the region on the 6th June 2017. On this auspicious occasion Derivco took the opportunity to welcome the team members and their immediate families to celebrate in a traditional Tshwane setting, a big 5 game park.

Banking apps, user registration and payment-processing tools: in Menlyn, ecommerce code is our core
Menlyn (far away from the mania of Joburg) is home to a group of exceptionally talented developer-overachievers who spend their days (and sometimes their nights, when we can’t drag them away) constructing all sorts of products based on ecommerce. Here, we use cutting-edge technology to build and maintain over twenty products in our back-office suite, including ecommerce B2C payments, user-registration applications, customer segmentation, complex event processing and more. Genuine people, bleeding-edge technology and a top-notch canteen make this office our home away from home.
Menlyn, the new commercial corporate hub of Pretoria, is a fast-growing urban area which offers integrated spaces for business, residential properties and lifestyle centres. There is nothing more convenient than having banks, gyms, hotels and amazing retail outlets in the same complex as your offices, which is exactly why we chose to work from this area. Pretoria, AKA the Jacaranda City (due to its proliferation of bright purple Jacaranda trees), is the gentleman city of South Africa: it’s home to the executive branch of government, three universities, the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, the South African Bureau of Standards and numerous embassies. Pretty and professional, it allows for a perfect balance between work life and life life.
The programme focuses on the core competencies needed to succeed as a software developer and is able to access the untapped talent in rural areas – people with no access to colleges or universities
You can practically scribble on the walls anywhere you are in the office. We love our whiteboards at Derivco.
